Alexandra - The Desert Flame - Belly Dance is an ancient women's dance - to celebrate life, music, femininity & fun !
Alexandra has studied Egyptian dance for 18 years, with both national and international master teachers. With a wide variety of styles “under her belt” such as Egyptian Folkloric & Classical, American Tribal Style, Ghawazi & Dunyavi Gypsy – she is a professional performer, dedicated teacher for over 14 years and co-founder and co-principal (with Shameela) of the Desert Flame School of Belly Dance, Central Coast, N.S.W.
Alexandra’s passion for this dance is infectious, as she invites students to delve inside and bring out the dormant goddess, warrior, maiden or any one of the many archetypes that lay within a woman. With haunting or playful Arabic music as the key, good technique as the step, open the door and dance !!
She has celebrated Egyptian dance by performing and facilitating workshops at many festivals such as Sydney & Mid Nth Coast Middle Eastern Dance Festivals, Canberra National Folk Festival, Peats Ridge Festival, National Egypt Day, and numerous local music, arts and dance festivals, including her own area’s CoastFest. She regularly performs at Brackets and Jam, both Kincumba Mtn and Lake Munmorah, and other local festivals such as Warnervale Fair, Kids Day Out, Fun & Food (Toukley) to name a few.
